Tarp Release

7 05 2010

WF’s Erik Thorson has been fortunate enough to participate¬† in this years issue of tarp.¬† Release party tomorrow night, in the borough of Brooklyn.

This year’s issue focuses on the engagement of digital processes which are currently at the forefront of architectural discourse and practice. Various computational methodologies, such as parametric systems, generative processes, and scripting, all pose questions on organizational strategies, formal qualities, and branding, just to name a few. The work presented in this issue speculates on the significance of these techniques through a critical, if at times tentative lens of theoretical inquiry and practical application.

5 08 2008

We Have NO VISION rozpoczelo wlasnie dzialalnosc!

Jest to internetowy magazyn ktory wspoltworzy 15 osob: byli studenci i wykladowcy Iaac.

Autorzy pochodza z 5 kontynentow, stad celem magazynu jest uzyskanie dosyc globalnego punktu widzenia na niektore bardzo lokalne sprawy. Ma to byc miejsce do dyskusji i zadawania pytan, rowniez tych niewygodnych. Nazwa wiaze sie z przypuszczeniem ze nie mamy jednej wizji, lecz wiele przypuszczen (witamy w “multiplicity” o ktorej pisal Deleuze)

Moj pierwszy artykul znajduje sie tutaj: Why the term open-source architecture is profoundly wrong?

We Have NO VISION is up and running!

It’s a web magazine co-authored by 15 former students faculty of Iaac.

The contributors come from 5 different continents, so it’s aim is to bring together quite a global view on some local issues. It’s a platform for discussion and rising some tough questions, I hope. The name refers to the fact that we have no single vision (welcome to Deluzian multiplicity).
